DO NOT CRITICIZE, INSTEAD: SING IT OUT!

Today I saw the video of Lily Allen's first single of her new album and fell in love with her dress right away.
Take a look!

The song is cool (cheeky like Katy Perry), her hair is adorable, the location is awesome.. I love everything about the video actually.. reminds me of a children's b-day party.
Speaking of having a great time, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.
Happy New Year, fashionfellas! ;-)

P.S.: Do you realize the bow on her collar? Yeah, yeah..

DO SOMETHIN' WITH A BOW

It's already a few months ago that Chloe Sevigny wore this amazing dress to the 60th Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards at September, 13th but still it's very up-to-date and also reminds me of the Guinevere Clutch by Be & D I posted 2 days ago. Take a look.. and it's sequined!


Wouldn't that be a perfect outfit for Christmas?
I just can't get enough of this colour.

TAKE-AWAY

Ever heard of Be & D? If you dig this bow-clutch, you should not forget about Be Inthavong and Steve Dumain anymore and take a greater look at their handbags.

BANDAGE-FETISH?!

I am sure you have seen that dress somewhere in magazines.

Possibly you have just turned the page without paying too much attention. How careless!
Hervé Léger's dresses are very particular and being copied a lot these days. This bandage-like look is as interesting as beautiful.

And a few of my favourites of his Fall 2008-Collection.

UNDERSTATEMENT




This week Rihanna showed off with a well-fitted black jumpsuit (sharp shoulders, cropped leg and pockets), pointy pumps and a huge bold necklace! by Burberry Prorsum at the Jingle Bell Ball in London.

Great combination, awesome eyecatcher! Love this necklace!

(I've been posting about 'accessory-mania' in October)

FUTURISM-VICTIM

If you are open-minded when it comes to fashion, you will probably fall for this designer who is someone to remember and surely to be talked about in the future.
Here the fashion Show of Fall/Winter 2008.. and don't dare to think that it's something nobody would ever dare to wear. I will show you otherwise after the clip. Enjoy!



'Who is about to wear this', you are asking? 'And to what occasion', you are wondering?
Here is Beyonce at the EMA 2008 in Liverpool.


Actually wearable to any big party-like occasion except of white/black tie-dinners, of course. It's extraordinary, dramatic and sexy. Definitely something to consider for individualistic and confident women :)

P.S.: Watch the Clip again and take a closer look at the black sequined pants at minute 1:35. Already an insider tip and available at TopShop. (Or black sequins leggings from Express.)

MORE THAN ENGLISH TEA


Keira attending a party several weeks ago. Sorry, I couldn't find a full size picture of her outfit.. but anyhow I love her blouse and that she is wearing it with a pair of flanel-like trousers.
Lightbrown leatherhandbag and - my suggestion - adequate boots/heels.
Looks really cool with long hair (side parting) and long bangs, just like Keira.

I found a similiar outfit at Altamira NYC.

TUXEDO, PLEASE.... ERHM.. YES, FOR WOMEN!

Yesterday I attended my company's christmas dinnerparty. As I expected, I changed my mind about the outfit a few hours before leaving. I didn't pick the classy tuxedo.. instead I prefered to do a bit of a change in style. I kept the tuxedo-blazer and mixed it with a black knee-length skirt with black sequins on top of it, black tights, white blouse and knee-lenght boots.
For Illustration (I know, I have to get myself a new camera sometime soon):



Women Tuxedo available at H&M. Very classy and affortable ;-)

GOLDEN COLD

I created three ways of wearing gold sequin pants for a rather state occasion (that's how I would dress for a christmas party).
H&M uses big flowers (in darkred, darkblue, black and darkgreen) to stick onto your coat or to your blouse.. I instead take black rose-rings and rose-earrings (no rose-necklaces!).


FAKE DIAMONDS

Last weekend I went to a little xmas-market at stammkaffee to visit a friend who makes her own jewelry to sell. And yes, in the end I just had to buy myself a beautiful black ring with a gorgeous black rose on it.
Check her stuff out!

NEWSFLASH

H&M just announced MATTHEW WILLIAMSON to be the next collection designer for Spring 2009 which hits selected stores April 23rd.
What is to be expected? Neons, clashing prints and billowy silhouettes - to get an inside look on his clothes so far, check out matthewwilliamson.com

I'm excited already. I think colour will be huge summer 2009 and to be honest, I don't have anything pink in my closet yet which is a shame for a girl ;-)

ALEXA FOR ELLE

Check out the clothes.. there are several great outfits for upcoming christmas-parties.

GO PONCHO GO



I don't like winter-fashion that doesn't seem to keep you warm. What is the point of that? If you don't feel (well in) your Outfit, there is no sense in wearing it.

So here is something really cool and practical.

Nice large poncho.. making it more chic with accessorizes like the long and simple necklace with a big casual pendant, belt (for a waist-silhouette) and english-style hat.
Of course.. BIG handbag (just like I LOVE it), I'd prefer black skinny jeans and boots (motorcycle or cowboy-like boots).

Feminine, easy, beautiful AND it keeps you warm.

A COSY WARM MASTERPIECE



TWO THUMBS UP for this Outfit!

Just yesterday i bought myself a cardigan like this (only in a lighter colour.. available at H&M). A must-have for fashionists :)


The way she is mixing the fake fur vest with the checked shirt, loose mini-skirt and fake leather leggings is absolutely perfect to me.

A total 'Get the Look' - piece.

TAKE IT EASY


Mary-Kate Olsen spotted going out for dinner and running errands.
What is so special about it? - Her shoes [most likely vintage - I love them].
Both times keeping the style alike: Oversized long-shirt-dress, accessorizes (big scarf, doublebelt) and the handbag of the season, a long large shoulder bag (can easily be worn across the body).

ROCKERISH VS. CHIC




Two ways to wear this Little modern zipped Black Dress (LBD - already mentioned it in my blog - a must have this season).
Shiny faux leather Leggings and a nice leather Jacket, mixed with sweet Ankle Boots and a Cotton Scarf to keep it a bit urban.
Considering the Dress offers 2 zips (top and bottom), it can be easily mixed with a Blouse to give it a feminine touch (just unzip at the top as much as you prefer), add a thin Belt to appear more classy/business-like and a Cardigan, keep the Ankle Boots.

This Dress is quite simple and can just be worn with Ballerinas too for instance.. just unzip from the bottom to show more legs and you are done.

WARM NOVEMBER

September went to be very cold quite quickly and now, November seems to start to get warmer again.. that's why I can leave my warm jacket at home these days.

BEING CHIC WHEN IT'S GETTING COLDER



Long Tweed Cardigans are very fashionable right now, just as Knitwear in general. It's warm, comfortable and hip.
First I tried something more chic with slightly high-waisted wide-leg Jeans and ankle highheels. Some jewelry to pep it up a bit more.
In the second Outfit I went a bit more for the weekend-look. Very nice with a button-down men's shirt.. also mixable with comfortable heelless boots. And yes, I am a big fan of trapper hats.

A CHANCE TO GRAB



Just the forecast i made a few weeks ago. Fall/Winter is speaking in the colours of black and navy-blue.

If I had to pick 2 things out of the CDG-Collection, I'd choose the very first jacket on the left and the last jacket with the zip on one side.
I must confess, I kinda dig the blue-white/black-white pockedots combination.

NEXT DESIGNER, PLEASE!

Next month, H&M is set to launch clothing by another guest designer. This autumn we talk of Rei Kawakubo, founder and head designer of the japanese label, Comme des Garcons, known for challenged norms with distressed fabrics, unfinished edges, asymmetrical cuts and monochromatic tones. The collection will include everything from men’s, women’s and children’s clothing to accessories and even an exclusive unisex fragrance.

In the past Karl Lagerfeld, Stella McCartney, Viktor & Rolf and Roberto Cavalli designed apparel at H&M prices to be affordable for the everyday-person.

I'm so excited!

YOUR DISCO NEEDS YOU

I love those silver sequin leggings so much, that I tried to make an adequate outfit. Of course there is a way to go decent with it, but I wanted to make something glittery/rockstar-like for once.

LET'S ROLL IT UP



As Jeans never go out of fashion, Katie Holmes shows up with a new way to wear them. Looking fashionable and being comfortable at the same time.

Reese Witherspoon is digging it too.

Wearing it with a big Leatherbelt, Shirt and Ballerinas.
Cool.

AS SEEN ON KIRSTEN

Seen at Urban Outfitters (available in lightbrown, darkblue and black) and recently discovered a similiar jacket (Ruffle Peacoat) on Kirsten Dunst.

FIRST AMERICAN APPAREL STORE IN VIENNA

Scarves and undies in every possible colour!

BOUQUET OF SCARFS

I always loved the fashion-ads for winter mufflers by united colors of benetton. Eyecatching, trendy and most importantly soft. There isnt anything more disturbing than a scarf that's scratchy (this also applies to turtle necks).

THE ETHICAL WAY TO REFRESH THE WARDROBE



As seen at the A/W 08 shows of Givenchy, Burberry Prorsum, Lanvin, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Julien Macdonald, Prada and Yves Saint Laurent.. the outstanding piece this Winter is the Costume Jewelery. Statement necklaces will be the new lust-have accessory for Christmas. From gothic layered chains and metal creations to big and bold bracelets (cuffs) and earrings - worn with everything.
